After a trip to Nova Scotia, and a very big introductory lesson in Acadian history, I'm now wondering if I'm a descendant myself.
Here's the information that I have at hand right now:
My great-grandmother was named Marie Doucet(te). born Nova Scotia 1904 died Boston 1933 during childbirth Six children, including John, Verna (Melanson- Corberrie, NS), Lorraine (Fuller, now Bowman- Melrose, MA, b. 1931), Robert.
I know very little else about Marie's life at this point, other than she moved from NS to the Boston area sometime around 1930, as Lorraine (my grandmother) was born in Boston in 1931. I'm working with my family when I can to find out more information, but if there's anyone out there that can provide anything, I'd love to hear it! :)
